COURSE OF THE WEEK: Hawk’s Eye Golf Resort

Hawk’s Eye Golf Course is a beautiful public 18-hole championship golf course that represents perfect harmony of natural habitat and the game of golf. It is the centerpiece of the Hawk’s Eye Golf Community in Bellaire.  

Carved through the rolling wooded terrain of northern Michigan, Hawk’s Eye will truly overwhelm you with beauty throughout the property. Large meandering bunkers, dramatic elevation changes and panoramic views are seen throughout the championship course.  

The course was opened in 2004 and was designed by John Robinson. It has matured over the years into a layout that caters to all types of golfer. From the tips, the course demands you bring your ‘A-game,’ as position is premium if you hope to score well. There are some forced carries, especially on the back nine, that will put length and accuracy to the test.

Standard tees offer a challenge as good as any in the golfing Mecca that is northern Michigan. It would be wise to study up on course management as you plan your strategy against the elusive par. The course will test your abilities while at the same time offer you design elements and vistas that will take your breath away.  

Forward tees offer the opportunity to skirt around some of the more troubling hazards and obstacles, making Hawk’s Eye Golf Course a fun round of golf without high intensity shot-making pressure. The full tee information is:
